·         Children in grades 1-5 should line up on the playground between 8:00 and 8:25 AM.  Teachers will assist children with finding the correct class line.  Your child’s teacher is indicated at the end of this letter.


·         Kindergarten children and parents can enter the school through the cafeteria door on Weyman Avenue.  Teachers will meet and greet students in the cafeteria by 8:15 AM.


·         The district breakfast program will beginon Wednesday, September 3, 2014.  The lunch program will begin on Thursday, September 4, 2014.  Breakfast is served in the cafeteria from 8:00 AM – 8:25 AM.  It is imperative that every family who needs assistance with the cost of breakfast and/or lunch complete the lunch form included in the home mailing and return it the first day of school.  A new lunch form must be completed every school year.




I am looking forward to seeing everyone.

Together, we will accept the diversity of all children, taking them forward on their educational journeys to reach their fullest potential, and encouraging their curiosity so they become successful lifelong learners.

Together, we will foster partnerships with the goal of encouraging student achievement by building on students' strengths and supporting their social and emotional development.

Together, we will continue to promote and enhance the educational development of every member (staff, students and parents) of the Jefferson Community.

A New Beginning

Dear CSDNR Family,

A New Beginning

With excitement and anticipation, I welcome you to the 2014-15 school year. Today on the first day of school, from the elementary to middle schools to the high school, I saw fantastic energy and enthusiasm among students, teachers and staff. We began by coming together yesterday at our staff opening convocation, in an inspiring beginning to the new school year. I share that first-day enthusiasm, as do our administrators and Board of Education. As your new Superintendent, I know that our also new Board of Education President Lianne Merchant and her esteemed colleagues are prepared to harness the power of a fresh perspective – adding that to a passion for building on our numerous existing successes. Working together, I am confident that we can sustain that “first day” feeling for all of us as we embark on this year’s educational journey.

Preparing for the School Year

This summer, many teachers engaged in curriculum writing, continuing education and professional enrichment opportunities. I have spent the summer getting to know this wonderful district and its dedicated employees. In the past several days, we have expanded our activity by welcoming and orienting 47 new staff members (see more at www.nred.org), congratulating 25 new tenure recipients at the Tuesday, September 2 Board meeting, and beginning an in-depth analysis of the grades 3-8 state test scores, 2013-14 New Rochelle ELA and Math Results.pdf.

2014 New York State English/Language Arts and Math Assessment Results

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has released ELA and Math assessment results. Please note that there was a technical error by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) in submitting the District's grade 5 math scores to NYSED. Grade 5 math scores were inaccurately displayed upon initial posting to NYSED's website and will be unavailable until the LHRIC and NYSED remedy the situation. Parent reports will be mailed by the LHRIC in September. For further inquiries please contact your school's administrator.
